Thompsonites have been recycling more than ever in 2017.
According to a news release from the Thompson Recycling Centre, the City is set to reach the 1,000,000 KG milestone for recyclable material processed for only the second time later this week.
The Centre estimates that they will pass the existing record of just over 1.03 million KG, which was set in 2014, by mid-December.
The milestone will be marked with a private ceremony on Monday for the staff and volunteers that keep the recycling centre running.
Every year the Thompson Recycling Centre diverts tonnes of recyclable materials out of the landfill here in the City.
